Joyner Lucas – Happy Birthday [Video]

The title of this song might suggest a light-hearted tune, but that’s absolutely not the case.

Joyner’s flow on Happy Birthday is reminiscent to the old school Eminem, which I am a big fan of, and not to mention, the prevalent theme of unplanned fatherhood in today’s society which he tackles so precisely and vividly in this dope visual.

Furthermore, the Worcester, MA native has already proven his story-telling capacity with the brilliant and real life adaptation of Ross Capicchioni, and with the release of Happy Birthday, Joyner squashes any and all doubts about his lyricism and his hip-hop.

And not to mention, he was the only rapper worth tuning into for the lame-ass BET/ Sprite Cypher from earlier this year.
